I'll tell you what feeling I'm NOT having...hunger! Starting Day 3, and all is well. Ok, all is well except for the headaches (normal withdrawal--expected this). But I can live with that for now.

Doris: Good morning!

denise2h: Then get started, and there will be support with you all the way. I'm new to this forum, but I think it's a place where I can feel right at home. Good luch to you!

Now off to have breakfast and another cup of coffee. And since I'm at work already, maybe I should knock a few things off my list of things to do...

Welcome, gals, we "Oldies but goodies" have been here for years, prepare and take it one day at a time, and don't starve yourself, it will get you nowhere.

Me, it's my daily exercise bike time now, be back later on, the beauty of retirement!

Good morning to all and later too. Thankyee Doris.

Sleepy this morning- I hate sleeping the morning away but changed my Melitonin brand and the new stuff is a flop. Can't win sometimes.
Denise your post brought tears to my eyes. I topped out once at 229 at 5' 6 1/2" . Thank G*D I came here. When we post here it is the equivalent of "journaling" for I have never been able to journal longer than 3 days but often post here 3 times in one day. For me there is loving kindness here and I live alone and need that in my life. You can find what ever you need when ever you need it here- any topic can be covered intelligently concerning what ever is happening to you at any given time.
Wellcome and stay with us. My first words of advice are to make yourself and this mission # 1 . Seems we women tend not to do that.
WOW, hope I haven't turned you off.
Garden Angels are calling me to get out there so they can whisper to me- marvy cool day for a change.

Good morning everyone and welcome to the 2 new

Thanks for the start off, Doris.

As Doris said, don't starve yourselves and remember that this is NOT a DIET but a life style change, so choose wisely. You new people need something that YOU can stay with for life.

We are packing up the Motor Home and getting ready for our next little trip, so I need to finish getting groceries. BBL.

Welcome new people.

Health IS a major reason to do this. The weight has really affected my knees and for various reasons I can never have replacement surgery so I have to lose a lot of weight or I won't be able to walk!

Good morning all and welcome to the new ones...stick around and stay a while...nice and cool this morning as the on-shore flow continues in SoCal. I love it and wish I lived closer to the beach as I did when we first moved to California. I used to love walking the sand in the fog...sigh! Now I just wish for the coolth as the Inland Empire is probably 30 to 40 degrees warmer in the summer, and here it comes.

All my tail-waggers are happy to be back in the house. It was good for me to see even the grumpy chihuahua welcome puppy Buddy back into the house. I've still to talk with the vet's office manager to find out the story on him...we know he has not been castrated and can feel his testicles so don't know what the doc means by him being crypto. Maybe I'll get a second opinion...don't know why I'm still using this doc. Been going to him for 18 years and it has turned into a madhouse there. Always an almost two hour wait even to just drop off or pick up a pooch let alone see the doc. And as I said, there was the confusion about whether or not the bill had been paid. Waiting for Nadine to come over to check out both Snoopy and Buddy. What a day I had yesterday.

BTW, does anyone here know anything about Carecard? I've ran across a couple of people there who have it and they say it's good for both animal and human healthcare and they say it saves quite a bit...I'm going to check it out to see. That $800 for the surgery on Snoopy's neck was a bit much even Nadine, who used to work there, thinks so.

Starting my second year of JUDDD and really paying attention to the rotations. Already lost the two of the three pounds I put back on last month, so really knuckling down. I know the exercising will increase muscle mass so weight loss may slow a bit, but I'm determined to lose the final 30 pounds. As everyone says, it is a way of life and, now that the blues have left, I'm looking forward to the next few years getting better. I can already feel the improvement the last 40 pound weight loss made, now looking forward to the next ones.

Chatty Cathy this morning...hope everyone is doing well and have escaped the foul weather and have a great day...type ya later.

Hey, Denise! Back in 2004, I couldn't barely walk to our mailbox out front, nor out back to the compost pile, without breathing hard and heavy, couldn't go to any event because couldn't walk up and down those stairs to get to a seat in any arena, couldn't walk through turnstiles at amusement parks, etc. Began using the exercise bike we have in our living room, husband already used it for years. First day, did 7 minutes!!! lol But every day, was able to do more and more, been doing it faithfully for all these years, day in and day out, weekends, holidays, makes no difference, we do it. That bike has been our savior. Maybe that exercise would help you, I don't know. I don't always eat well every day over these past years, BUT, that bike gets ridden, no excuses about "it's too hot outside,", or can't get to a gym, etc. Figure out exercise you can and will do at home, no dressing up, etc. Housework really isn't enough exercise, to build up fitness. Walking is great, don't know if you are into that. Just DO something, every single day.
I lost the initial weight on "Deal A Meal", before I was on this site.

Take care of yourselves, friends.

I have to be on the phone, getting someone to turn on the gas at the house, lol...........

Hi everyone. How y'all doing? Looks like a lot of busy ladies today. Just thought I'd stop by and give you a wave.

Weather is still on the gloomy side. Temp is a tolerable 70 degrees. Nice gardening weather. Lainey glad to hear you are cooler for your gardening day.

We did a major clean out of our worm farm and spread the casings around some plants. Now the happy fellows are starting a new batch of paper shreds and peat moss composting with kitchen raw veggie garbage. I'm having so much fun with my little hobby.

Don's taking the fur kids with him for a ride to the sporting goods store. They are all excited and Don will be too when he gets his fishing license for our Grizzly camping trip coming up.
Linda I'm getting itchy feet to get on the road too. Where will your next road trip take you?

Time to get my cauliflower steamed and ready for making up some mashed with cheese for dinner tonight. Have a nice time today ladies. Doug take care of that better half with her recovery. See you later.

I wonder what today has in store for us? Expect good!

Checking in. We have some beautiful weather.
I was very happy to see how well my oldest DB is doing since his by pass surgery.
He looked great and is down to 2 days a week for dialysis. He is back to his golf job and doing quite well.
It was a nice trip and I got to visit with the family. Will post pictures eventually.
Been busy since getting back.

coming in to say night, night!

Didn't do much today- some pruned trees that I wish I could dig up or kill. The birds plant every where and every thing.Cuttin them just makes the tougher. I fill several watering cans for all my plantins so I don't over water and to be sure they get enough. Now I pull out the baby trees, weeds and anything I didn't plant the minute I spot them. Plan to get gardening stuff out of the garage and into the little potting shed tomorrow.
Felt a little off today but hoping to be back to my "get her done" self tomorrow.
Sweet dreams all.
Yes, I love that cat and little boy- soooo sweet.
